More About Program Benefits


The scientific and clinical use of medicinal plants such as Gemmotherapy is unique, virtually setting itself apart from traditional herbal therapies known today. All of the plant extracts are harvested at the embryonic stage of the plants growth, therefore they contain higher concentrations of phytochemicals and very specific anti inflammatory constituents  as well as a wealth of vitamins and minerals, trace minerals, amino acids, growth factors and enzymes. When consumed by humans the plant stem cell extract acts on organs and organ systems to gently stimulate and promote elimination, protein synthesis, detoxification, nourishment, RNA repair, and select tissue regeneration.

 The young buds, shoots and rootlets have a high degree of efficacy because of the energy yield produced by the pristine nutrients found within them. Therefore, this will have a significant and positive impact on future growth and renewal for the plant itself. Sequestering this energy in an extract form can result in profound changes in our own organs and tissues of the human body. In addition to their rejuvenating health benefits, they are gentle and safe with no side effects.

 Gemmotherapy is considered an anti aging phytotherapy with  the potential to improve quality of life, including long term chronic conditions. They are instrumental in modulating the body’s toxic burden while replenishing it with those perfect nutritional rejuvenating agents. Having the ability to begin working in as little as 3-4 days in most cases is exceptional, making it a therapy of choice for hard working athletes. 

One of the intriguing aspects of Gemmotherapy is the effect they have on the mental plane. It has been noted that there is a grounding and calming of the nervous system. This means mental clarity, focus and confidence, making Gemmotherapy a triple bonus for the dancer! Moving pain free, having the energy to do it and the mental well-being and clarity to get great results, Gemmotherapy herbal extracts are the perfect way to go!

About My Professional Career


  • I have been a competitively trained athlete since the age of 9 years. My  passion and interest was both in dance and Synchronized Swimming. After  many years of training as an elite competitor I received a scholarship  to swim at The Ohio State University where I won an Intercollegiate  National Championship title and was awarded an All American ranking. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education and went on to become  an assistant coach for the OSU Synchronized Swim Team. In 1982 I was  invited to become the assistant coach for a prestigious synchronized  swim team in Walnut Creek California. In 1984 I was elected as a  consulting coach for the United States Olympic Synchronized Swim Team  held in Los Angeles, California. 
  • About  this time I was diagnosed with Scleroderma, a debilitating autoimmune  disease fraught with many problems, causing pain and immobility in  muscle and joints along with severe circulatory restriction. It was a  quest to find just the right treatment therapy, hence I discovered the  natural world of food supplements, homeopathy and herbal solutions. For  the last 25 years I have not only discovered what continues to work for  me, I have successfully brought solutions to those needing answers to  their own personal health concerns. 
  • I  have extensive knowledge as an educator in the nutritional supplement  industry and dedicated many years researching and developing specialized  protocols for individuals like myself. I am a contributor to a  wellness health blog called Health Notes Express for Natural View Market also teaching  wellness  seminars to the public at Natural View Market Wellness MedSpa
  • I  received my certification through Health Sciences Academy in the UK, in  collaboration with Imperial College London and am a member of  the Michigan Naturopathic Association and the International Alliance of Holistic Therapists. To support my knowledge I have accumulated 300 CPD Certified Accreditations toward continuing my  professional development.
  • I  specialize in the study of flower essences and homeopathy receiving  my diploma certification, graduating with distinction from Centre of Excellence. I have an extensive background of knowledge and experience in herbal therapy, plant nutrition,  Gemmotherapy and have several certifications for the many educational courses completed throughout my studies.  I support the concept of bio  individual nutritional recommendations and prioritize according to the  goals of the individual. My programs are simple, targeted and effective!
  •  I  continue to dance with my husband and favorite partner in life~ I take  my health and wellness very seriously, and yes I really love to dance!   (Pictured above with her Instructor Dwight Davis winning first place in  the American Smooth Scholarship 2017 And again in 2018!
